    Hey guys and gals, some of you may recall that I have been hurting for a Warwick Thumb Bass 5 String for some time. Well, I have been researching some options, etc recently and I came accross a local luthier named John McQuarrie who owns a shop called Northwood Guitars. I have him set up my 6 string fretless and and his work was excellent. WE got talking and he can make me a custom 5 string fretted bass that is similar enough to the Warwick, but that he claims will be better. I like his confidence in his product and there is one like what I would order featured on his website (www.northwoodguitars.com) in the FLASH version of the site. I am wondering, has anyone on here played a Northwood bass?
